Mumbai blasts probe still with ATS: Chavan
Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister
Prithviraj Chavan on Wednesday said the state Anti-Terrorism Squad
was probing the triple bomb blasts in Mumbai in July with the
support of all the investigating agencies in the country.
When asked about reports that the case would be
transferred to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), Chavan
said state ATS was probing the case, but it relied on other
agencies too. "Delhi blast case probe too is being
co-ordinated in this manner," he added.
When asked about his meeting with the Union Home
Minister, P Chidambaram, two days ago, Chavan said as
Chidambaram was stopping over in Mumbai on his way to Delhi
from Tamil Nadu, "I invited him for dinner during which we
reviewed the law and order situation in the state upon the
conclusion of Ganesh Festival".
Chief Secretary, DGP, Mumbai Police Commissioner,
Additional Chief Secretary (Home) and secretary of Marketing
Department were also present.
Chavan said Chidambaram assured him that the decision to
ban onion exports would be reconsidered. Onion farmers have
been protesting the ban.
